I am having way too much fun with the high-definition version of the Flip Mino video camera (Flip calls it the MinoHD and says it’s the “world’s smallest” HD camcorder). It weighs only 85 g and can store 60 minutes of high-quality video, supports Windows and Mac (including QuickTime and iMovie), and is inobtrusive, as those you film will think you are holding your mobile phone. Image quality is greatly improved over the original version, which wasn’t at all bad.
Here are two clips, a ride on the S-Bahn in Vienna and my attempt to conduct the virtual Wiener Philharmoniker (Vienna Philharmonic) earlier today at the Haus der Musik museum in Vienna.
It’s good for quick product demos as well and you can easily publish an edited video to YouTube or distribute it privately via a greeting card or e-mail sent via Flip’s servers.
